2014 will bring the XXII Olympic Winter Games to Sochi, Russia. As usual, one of the most highly anticipated events will be the Men’s Ice Hockey competition. Coming off of their thrilling gold medal winning performance at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, all eyes will be on Team Canada to see whether the men from the “Great White North” can once again see their flag raised in victory. McFarlane Toys presents two of the players at the helm of the canadian ship on the ice and the Team Canada 2014 figure line, Sidney Crosby and Jonathan Toews.
Sidney Crosby, the sensational forward for the Pittsburgh Penguins, led Canada to the gold in 2010, scoring the tournament clinching goal in overtime against Team USA. Heading into the Sochi Olympics, Crosby will be taking on a leadership role and expected to continue the legacy of Team Canada hockey. Crosby’s figure will be wearing the iconic red Team Canada jersey
Jonathan Toews, the two time Stanley Cup winner for the Chicago Blackhawks, will be playing in his second straight Olympics, and is looking to capitalize on his performance in 2010, when he led Team Canada in points. Heading into the Sochi Olympics, Canada will look to Toews to help lead their team to another gold medal. Toews is showcased in the black Team Canada jersey.
As an added bonus, be on the lookout for a small number of Toews in the white Team Canada jersey!
Keep an eye out for these figures when the 2014 Winter Olympics rolls around next month!
